Multiple drivers will use the single account setup for an Automatic Pro adapter.  I have the Automatic Pro app installed on each of the phones and each phone's app is logged into the account that the adapter is associated with.  Does the Pro adapter need to connect via Bluetooth to each phone (my son's phone when he is driving, my wife's phone when she is driving, my phone when I am driving, etc....)?  If so, what is the process to pair the adapter to the phone for the 2nd, 3rd, etc.... phone?

Hi, Matthew & Ashok,

You do not need to pair every phone. They should be able to log into the Pro app w/ the same account and see all of the things. No matter who drives the car, the trips & parking will show up in real time for anyone looking at the app. However, if you want to clear the Check Engine Light or use streaming apps (like OBD Fusion), you can only do these with a phone paired with the adapter as they require the Bluetooth connection between adapter & phone.
